1. Do you use a book cover or remove your hardbacks cover when reading out in public, or do you not care if everyone sees your sexy book cover?
I always remove the dust jackets when reading hardcover books because I'm afraid of damaging them. Most of the romance novels I read are paperbacks so they don't have dust jackets to remove, but I will admit to selecting novels with relatively tame covers to take along if I know I'll be reading at kid-filled locations like the dentist's office or the playground.
2. What new series have you fallen in love with this year?
The first one that comes to mind is Richelle Mead's addictive Vampire Academy series. I can't wait to read The Last Sacrifice! Julie Kagawa's Iron Fey series also deserves an honorable mention as does Lisa Mantchev's Theatre Illuminata series.
3. What story did you love reading as a kid?
I always loved fairy tales. I also remember liking the Sweet Pickles books, Sylvester and the Magic Pebble, The Giant Jam Sandwich, and The Weighty Word Book.
4. If you were a character in a book which book and who would you be?
The first character that comes to mind is Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice. Marrying Mr. Darcy and residing at Pemberley sounds lovely, but indoor plumbing and modern medicine are extremely important to me, so perhaps that wouldn't be such a good fit after all. ;-) If I make modern conveniences a priority, then perhaps Clary Fray from the Mortal Instruments books would be a better choice - impressive rune-drawing skills, a devoted best friend, and a delicious love interest - I think I could handle that. ;-)
5. What book have you heard raves/good reviews about but didn't care for it yourself?
I didn't fall in love with Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire series, even though almost everyone I know enjoys that series. I liked Charlaine Harris' Harper Connelly series, but Dead Until Dark just didn't capture my interest enough to make me want to read the rest of the series. Perhaps I read it just after finishing some other book that I loved and somehow didn't end up giving it a fair shot.
